Thanks for posting the query.

I need to know from what infection you suffered, which was considered fatal to your baby.

I think the consulting doctor might have undertaken certain tests to come to the diagnosis, reports will be with you.
Kindly show that to you boyfriend's mom.

You have informed that doctors recommended abortion, have you already under gone it.
Kindly mention the clear history.

What antibiotics have been prescribed for the infection.If you show the reports to her, that itself will be proof.

Hope I have answered all your questions. I will be available for follow up queries if any.
